Dear 100 Hour Board,

how high can you count to?

Dear you,

Accurately? Not very.

Dear MNH,

This is totally on a tangent, but when I was in elementary school my parents wanted me to go to an elementary school with a "gifted children" program. One of the questions on the entrance test was "how high can you count" and my answer was "I don't know, I've never tried counting that high". They said that my answer was wrong which made me so mad because:

  1. It was an open ended question! You can't get an open ended question wrong. That's just stupid
  2. Numbers just keep going. I knew that, and I figured if I didn't know what number came next I could just look it up in a book and keep going. So I didn't know how high I could count. Stupid question.
  3. Who's going to keep counting until they can't count anymore? Ain't nobody got time for that! That would be boring. And stupid.

Anyways, the answer to your question is "I don't know, I've never tried counting that high." I hope you like that answer because I'm maybe still a little bitter about them docking me a stupid point on the stupid exam to their stupid program.
